We paid $700 taxes included and felt the price was good given the 3 star rating. We also looked at the reviews before we left and were well aware of...

Just got back to London from a 2 week stay in this hotel (25/5 - 8/6) 1. Room (9/10) - nice and clean, a maid mopped the floor, cleaned the bathroom and made a bed every day, perfectly functioning A/C, convenient terrace. We'd appreciate changing the towels more often. 2. Food & Drinks(10/10) - plenty of various types of food,...

I have been reading the reviews for this hotel, and I fear there are some really spoiled people out there. I think for the price, you could not have had a better vacation. The rooms were big and clean, PLENTY of food, and NOT the same thing every day. (I hardly saw any pasta!) This was a first vacation for...

Not having been to Playa Dorada before, we were unaware that the resort consists only of hotels and nothing else. The only people you meet in Playa Dorada are people staying in the hotels, and people working in the hotels, so not much fun there. The rooms are pretty basic, clean enough but no frills. The public areas are well-designed...

As a relatively experienced traveller, I have stayed in a variety of places ranging from unrated to 5*+. When I booked this vacation, honestly, I was not expecting anything in the way of extraordinary, considering that the entire package was only costing me $649 Canadian, all inclusive. I read quite a few of the other reviews posted on Tripadvisor, and...
